I attended the world premiere screening of Outlander last night in San Diego, CA (at SDCC) and I just want to reassure anyone who might still be worrit about Sam being a convincing Jamie- dinna fash!
Even though I trusted Ron Moore & his production team, there was, yes, still a teeny-tiny part of me that wasn’t sure if I’d be able to reconcile Sam with the Jamie I held in my mind’s eye, when I read the books.
From the very first second “Jamie” appeared in the episode, I was sold. As in DONE. A goner. I wasn’t watching Sam Heughan on screen, I was seeing Jamie. MY Jamie.
And it wasn’t about nitpicking physical features—Sam just embodied Jamie. Or maybe channeled is a better word…
Have nae doot, you willna be disappointed.
